Friday, September 3, 2010 - 11:47 am

POTSDAM – The American Association of University Women (AAUW) will be discussing “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett on Wednesday, Sept. 8 at noon at the Potsdam Library.

Stockett's 2009 smash debut novel is still on the best seller lists and a favorite of book clubs across the nation. It is about African American maids working in white households in Jackson, Miss., during the early 1960s and features superlative attention to historical detail, dialect and characterizations. A movie is in the making.

The book for discussion next month, Oct. 13 is the 2009 Mann-Booker Prize winner “Wolf Hall” by Hilary Mantel.

For more information, call AAUW Book Discussion Chair Pat Musante at the Potsdam Public Library at 265-7230.

The public is invited and a brown bag lunch is encouraged.
